Hows many steps did I walk yesterday: using Cordova, HealthKit, and JavaScript, and a handful of Promises

As people who know me might know I have been playing around with various wearables for some years now, starting with a Nike Fuel Band, and also trying out products from Misfit and UP along the way. I have mostly just watched with interest as my exercise levels, and indeed sleep now we have a little one in the house, has gone up and down over time.

Since this isn’t a standard 10g functionality I wrote some JavaScript to make it happen. But I didn’t reinvent the wheel Knipogende emoticon ! The people at jQuery already did the bases, I simple adapted it for usage in OBIEE 10g.

OBIEE10g AutoRunPrompt

A client asked me if I could create an auto run prompt for him. Basically he wanted an edit box prompt which would updated his report after each character has been typed.

How to use it?

1. Add an edit box style prompt to your dashboard:
